It seems hard to imagine anything which is not (essentially) related to the idea of space, be it an object or a region of the reality, or abstract notions like speed or friendship. Nevertheless, there are few thinkers throughout the history who put the space in the center of their investigations, and when they do there is little agreement on the matter. Is space natural or produced; which comes first, the space or the time; is it one and geometrically homogeneous or are there many varieties of space; are social emancipation movements possible without the creation of their own space; can we imagine space; is thinking itself essentially spatial?
